Addiction can be understood as the continued repetition of a behavior despite the negative consequences that may arise due to that pattern. These behaviors are compulsive and may interfere with a person’s ability to handle his or her day-to-day responsibilities and can often put a great amount of strain on familial and interpersonal relationships. Addictive behaviors can come in many forms and can include drug and alcohol abuse, sex and love addiction, food addiction, computer addiction and gambling.
At The Camden Center, our highly trained staff understands that addiction is a complex condition that often takes more than a strong will and good intentions to break. Addiction often comes with other co-morbid disorders such as depression and anxiety and effective treatment must address all issues appropriately.
